Due to COVID, we are not currently offering staffed events.
Hold on, we've got options.
We are offering drop-off delivery of any of our catering items – boxed or plattered. We also have some new options: online ordering of fresh or frozen meals for delivery or pickup, seasonal and themed party boxes, and takeout and dining at our SoDo café – now open for breakfast as well as lunch (limited seating available).
Our events team is busily planning all types of celebrations for next year (including staffed celebrations!); contact us today to plan your future events!

SEATTLE KOSHER CATERING AND KOSHER-STYLE CATERING
Having offered kosher catering for Seattle’s Jewish community since 1992, we can create custom menus for all your Simcha – from Shabbat dinners, Kiddush luncheons, Passover feasts, to that post-party Sunday brunch.
Because of our extensive experience with kosher catering, we are knowledgeable of Jewish cuisine and are familiar with and sensitive to the laws of kashrut as applied by the Rabbis in each synagogue. Each and every event is custom-tailored to your needs and requirements.
All meals made in our Seattle catering kitchen can be prepared kosher-style in keeping with meat or dairy meals, and we can use kosher meats upon request. Meals can be prepared kosher or glatt kosher if cooked in a kosher kitchen. On Safari Foods is a preferred kosher caterer at many kosher synagogues in Seattle, including Herzl ner Tamid, Congregation Beth Shalom, Temple Beth Am, Temple de Hirsch Sinai, Temple B’nai Torah and BCMH.
We can also cater and coordinate Seattle Vaad Harabanim-certified events. Mashgichim from the Vaad are $25 per hour, with a four-hour minimum. The size of the event will determine how many mashgichim are required. There is a $1.50 per plate fee on top of the hourly rate, plus a $125 fee.
WORKING WITH US ON YOUR EVENT
To ensure that we have all the ingredients necessary to make your food, all orders must be confirmed within 72 hours of your event. Due to availability of items and kitchen capacity, we cannot guarantee the fulfillment of any orders placed less than 72 hours before the event.
Changes can be made to your order up to 72 hours in advance of your event. Any adjustments after that point, are subject to availability and a 20% surcharge.

I can't speak more highly of On Safari Foods. I have been working with their team for over 8 years, from 400+ people dinner auctions to small intimate affairs and every type of event in between. The food is always creative and delicious, and the service is friendly and detail-oriented
As an event manager, I've had the pleasure of working with this team on almost a dozen events in the last year and have had nothing but PHENOMENAL experiences on all types of events ranging from private receptions for 20 to large parties for 500.
On Safari Foods catered a party for us this week and it was fabulous. They arrived on time, set up easily, and cleaned up completely. The food was terrific! A good variety of flavorful choices and lovely to look at - at least until everyone emptied the trays. I will definitely be calling them again.
